HELP US KEEP FREE BREAKFAST & LUNCH
Booker Parents, we have only collected 65% of our Free & Reduced Lunch Applications! Without 100% of our applications, Booker is in jeopardy of losing the privilege of qualifying for free breakfast and lunch for all students under the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) sponsored by the campus, which is a federally funded program.
Check here for more info: https://www.fns.usda.gov/cn/community-eligibility-provision.
Parents and guardians, the annual update is a requirement for every child enrolled in Spring ISD. Please complete the ANNUAL UPDATE NO LATER THAN AUGUST 30TH! We will have to start pulling students out of class after the deadline!

CHROMEBOOK AUDIT IS NEXT WEEK!
CHROMEBOOK AUDIT IS ALMOST COMPLETE!
Thank you for helping us with our Chromebook Audit. We are at 75%, but need to get to 100%! We have 119 students left! If your student checked out a Chromebook during the 2020-2021 school year, please have them bring it to school on Monday, September 13th so it can be scanned into the system and students can continue to use their device for the remainder of this school year. Student Chromebooks that have not been verified by Monday, September 13th, will be deactivated until it is presented to campus staff. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ms. Leslie Mitchell, Lberry@springisd.org.
